Hartford/SAND Midget Football
Eagles, Bears Win Midget Football Championships

C-Teams (8-10-year-olds)

The Eagles won the championship with a 12-0 shutout of the Steelers. Dominique Rose scored both of the team's touchdowns against a strong defensive by the Steelers.

B-Teams (10-12-year-olds)
In a rematch of last year's championship game, the Bears successfully defended their title 7-6 against the Seahawks. In a contest featuring strong defensive efforts by both teams, turnovers proved to be the difference. The Bears forced five Seahawk turnovers, including the interception that set up their only touchdown. Melvin "Bubby" Perry led the Bears' defensive effort with two fumble recoveries and Charles Baker chipped in with a fumble recovery and an interception.
Rodrecus Watkins accounted for all the Bears' scoring with a touchdown and extra point. Clifton King scored the lone Seahawks TD, which briefly gave them the lead in the first half of the game.

A-Teams (12-14-year-olds)
Courtney Gravely, Devon Little and Jeffrey Hernandez all scored touchdowns in the Falcons' 18-0 shutout of the Giants. The win sends the Falcons into this Saturday's A-Team Championship game, where they will face the Redskins, who earned their championship berth with 14-6 win over the 49ers. The Redskins' defensive squad was the star of the game with a safety and a touchdown by Jesus Cintron off an interception. Misael Rosado accounted for the other Redskin score with a touchdown pass to Tyran Sampson. Andre James scored for the 49ers with a touchdown run off a fumble recovery.
@NEWS = The A-Team Championship will be held this Saturday, October 31, at 12 noon at Colt Park. The game will be preceded by the C-Team All Star Game at 9 am and the B-Team All Star Game at 10:30 am.

High School Football
HPHS Blasts South Windsor 60-8

Hartford Public Running Back Darrion Williams continued his rampage through the CCC-East last Saturday with touchdown runs of 64, 33 and 24 yards in the Owls' 60-8 win over South Windsor. All of Williams' touchdowns came in the first half, as did TD's from Jason Wyatt (2), Michael Vargas and Danny Diaz for a 52-0 Owl lead going into the second half. Not wishing to run up the score any further, the Owls took the heat off for the remainder of the game, scoring only one touchdown on a 91-yard run by Albert Lebron following a fumble return. South Windsor was able to score a touchdown and a safety in the final minutes of the game.

The win ups Hartford Public's record to 5-0. They will next face East Hartford (4-2) at East Hartford this Friday, October 30, at 7 pm.

Weaver Bested by Conard, 42-14
Troubles continued for Weaver's injury plagued team last Saturday as the team dropped its second game in a row, losing to Conard 42-14.
Conard took a 28-0 lead into the second half but Weaver was able to cut the difference in half in the second quarter. Quarterback Tim Rush threw two touchdown passes, one to Shamelle Gibson for 25-yards and another to Ronte Eaton for 38-yards. Kimali Sinclair booted the extra points on both TD's but a one-yard Conard TD late in the quarter snuffed out the Beaver rally. Weaver's record now drops to 3-2. This Saturday they will take on Windsor (4-1-1) at home at 12 noon.

Bristol Central Too Much for Bulldogs
The Bulkeley Bulldogs came up short again last Friday, losing 34-14 to Bristol Central. Bulkeley's defense held tough in the first half, allowing only one touchdown and scoring on a 69-yard fumble return by Aedan Joseph. But Bristol Central exploded for 20 points in the third quarter and added another seven in the fourth before Bulkeley was able to score on a 37-yard run by Jose Ramos. Bulkeley now drops to 0-6 and will next take on Southington at Southington (5-1) on Friday at 7 pm.

Wolf Pack Takes First Loss
The Hartford Wolf Pack took their first loss of the season Saturday night with a 4-3 loss to the Albany River Rats at the Hartford Civic Center. The game was the Pack's first defeat this year, but they remain atop the American Hockey League's New England Division with a record of 5-1. On Friday, the team had won its fifth game with a 4-3 win over New Haven.

Ken Gerander, Bob Errey, Johan Witehall and Christian Dube all scored in Friday night's game, while Marc Savard, Derek Armstrong and Gerander had goals in Saturday night's loss.
